Lifelong Learning for Seniors
Lifelong Learning is part of the mission of SCE. We value the liberal arts education and realize the lifetime benefits. We offer special rates for those 60 and over to continue their learning and enrich their lives.
Lifelong Learners may study as matriculants or non-matriculants, and come under the same policies as other SCE students. They may enroll in up to 17 credits per semester—credit or audit, Evening or Day—at a nominal flat charge of $160 per semester. Course enrollment is on a space available basis.
NOTE: the Lifelong Learning benefit applies to “regular” credit bearing courses only. It does not extend to such special forms as Applied Music, independent study, or Summer field studies. For non-credit-bearing courses or CMD music lessons, LLL’s pay the published fees.
